We are having a great Christmas with family here. Abby, Justin, Gabe, and Levi all home. It was different this year not having the 3 Christmas Eve services in the evening, but we had our 3 weekend gatherings at Compelled, Abby and Justin arrived and we took Christmas Eve dinner over and had dinner with dad, who now lives in Temperance at Moongate apartments. I sure love him being so close, but we all miss him in Morenci also. We spent a couple hours with him on Christmas Eve. Wendy made one of our favorites, “Alice Chicken” and we love it with mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts, rolls and salad. it was a feast.
Christmas morning was our family together. Priceless and special. We then load up and head to Hudson, to Wendy’s folks for another feast with our precious family, presents, and good time. Lots of Dutch blitz, laughing, and overeating. We love our time at Randy and Carol’s and enjoyed staying the night, and man did we sleep in.
Christmas this year seem nostalgic, and meaningful. Every year I am alive, Christ become more alive to me, and His work I see more clearer in others, including my family, which I am fiercely devoted to. My amazing wife Wendy, makes this time so special for our family. Here hard work, thought, and detail attention, always stuns me with peace and happiness. What a gal. We celebrate 31 years together January 3. What a blessed guy I am!
I pray your Christmas was special and the presence of Jesus was close.
